The spectacular work of art is free to public access and boasts four miles of footpaths on and around its glorious landform, along with a café and visitor centre.

The park’s centrepiece is the ‘Lady of the North‘. A stunning human landform sculpture of a reclining lady, measuring in at over 100 feet in height and spanning over a quarter of a mile.

Costing over £3M, Northumberlandia has been built by the Banks Group as part of the restoration of the adjacent Shotton surface coal mine.

The 3-dimensional art form was constructed whilst recovering much needed coal for UK energy generation. Known as restoration first, the art form was built on extra land donated by the landowner, the Blagdon Estate, adjacent to the mine and providing a new landscape for the community to enjoy while the mine is still operational.
